PROS: Perfect bronzer for my N10-15 skin (I am neutral-toned. A tiny bit more NC than NW). But it also wears well on my teen who is a true PPP, probably an NW5 if there is such a thing. One of the few bronzers I've found that doesn't either go muddy on me or end up too orange. This applies so smoothly and easily and evenly. Subtle but buildable. Doesn't bring out lines more where I apply it. Stays in place (hardly any fading over time.). No shimmer, so I can use it for contour beautifully and naturally. I usually don't care about this kind of thing, but this smells amazing.
CONS: The only cons I have is that it's not dirt cheap and that the packaging could be just tad smaller to make it easier to stash in purse.
ALTERNATES: Perhaps Smashbox's Suntan Matte, but it's not near as easy to apply as this is, and I have to be careful that it doesn't end up too dark on me. It's also just a bit orangier than this.
APPLICATION TIPS: I use Sephora's bronzer brush. It works very well (easy and natural application) but does shed just a bit. If someone reading this has one that works better,, feel free to send me a message with the name. :)

I finally found a great bronzer for contouring my fair skin! Everything I try is either too orange of too muddy. This is perfect and it smells delicious!

The best bronzer I've ever used. It smells delicious too! It is a beautiful matte and looks perfect on my fair skin. I can't use it for a contour though, as it pulls very orange and unnatural. Great for a light bronzing :)

I tried the original but it was too dark, red and muddy on my fair skin. I am between an NC20 and NC25. This milk chocolate version doesn't appear muddy or dark...I use it to contour and it looks natural. It's quite easy to blend into the skin too. Sturdy packaging and the scent is quite nice too.

This Bronzer is a Holy Grail for me! Especially during the winter months when my skin is lacking a bit of color! It smells wonderful! It looks natural! And it goes on very nicely! I would recommend this bronzer to anyone! If you are very fair and most bronzers make you look muddy, try this! I think you would really enjoy it! :)

Love this bronzer! It smells amazing and doesn't look orange! The staying power in my opinion is not the best that is why I have it a 4 out of 5... I do find myself grabbing for this bronzer a lot!

I'm always very wary of bronzers. First, they always look orange on me, even the Benefit Hoola bronzer. Otherwise, they are glittery and chunky and just looks bad.
But....my foundation was a shade too light and I wanted a sunkissed look for summer since my face tan has not caught up to my chest and arms.I was originally going to get this in the darker color, and then decided to get the lighter shade just in case. When I suddenly got tanner (NC30 to NC40 in a week!) I was afraid that the lighter shade I ordered online would be too light.
It gives such a beautiful and matte color to my skin that doesn't look forced, streaky, heavy handed, and most importantly, orange! It takes about one full sweep to bring color into my cheeks and I use this on my high cheekbones to bring them out, as well as on my temples for a faux tan.I have yet to contour my nose with this but I'm very suspicious that it will look absolutely natural.
Beautiful packaging, looks great on my counter.
The one con is the fake chocolate smell....reminds me of the chocolate milk cartons the first graders I work with spill, or sugary candy. Yuck. At least it only lasts a few minutes on my skin. If you smell it from afar, not so bad. Don't put your nose to the powder if you don't like chocolate. I eat chocolate by the ton and it still smells gross to me. Also, I cried a few tears the other day and it streaked through the bronzer LOL so I guess don't get your face wet or cry over stupid things when you have this on.
Overall, my HG bronzer for the purpose of bronzing. I can't say this is pigmented enough for contouring and sculpting, but I think the original shade would work for that.

I really like this bronzer! It's matte which is great, it's not too dark and definitely not orange. This suits me better when I'm a little bit paler as my skin is olive toned, but I also have the darker version which is great for the summer, not that I use it much when I'm tanned but a little extra definition is always good. The smell... now, I adore that smell. I love it so much: it truly smells like cocoa. Good staying power, good quality, doesn't break me out and doesn't break the bank. I've had mine for over six months of regular use and I'm still far away from hitting the pan so it does last a while. Absolutely recommend this.

Love this bronzer, give a slight glow without the prominent hash contrast on my complexion. Smell yummy, nearly hitting pan.
I reached for this more than my Nars Laguna and Tarte Park Ave Princess Matt bronzer.
Will repurchase once I hit pan.

I really like this bronzer because I use bronzer to contour rather than to tan my skin and it is so difficult to find a matte bronzer for fair skin! This one is really good for me though; it applies and blends well and the colour is nearly perfect for me (although perhaps still a tad too dark). I know a lot of people find the chocolate scent too much but I personally really like it! I think the packaging is really good quality too - as it should be when it costs as much as it does, that's its only downside!
